CrucifixionToday marks the saddest day in history, the world’s worst memory, and the lowest point of human history.

On this day, the Word Himself was silenced. The Light Himself was eclipsed in darkness.  The Author of life was put to death.

But God had other plans.  Allowing evil to spend itself on Him, taking our curse upon His innocent flesh, He made expiation for our sins, transforming death and suffering forever.

That said, I will add the following great classic from “The Cure” to this post.  It’s a little weird to look at, but the song always reminds me that the greatest act of love the world has ever known occurred on a Friday (indeed, many have spoken of Christ’s Cross as the “nuptial bed” in His marriage to the Church, His Bride).

Weekly Giveaway

Brandon Vogt, of http://www.brandonvogt.com, is offering four great items as part of his “Weekly Giveaway.”

For those of you who didn’t see my post a couple weeks ago (sorry I missed last week — got caught up in the “Wolves and Whales” post), Brandon has accumulated a large store of books and other resources over the years, and he gives away at least one item for free each week, no strings attached.

As I’ve said before, this is just in case anyone is interested.  If you’re Catholic, you will likely find these to be very helpful resources in your spiritual life.  If not, you might still find them inspiring, educational, and interesting — and free stuff never hurts!

Here’s more from Brandon’s blog:

I’m using Rafflecopter to help with the giveaway, which is cool because it gives you multiple entries for commenting, posting on Facebook, sharing on Twitter, etc.

The winner will be randomly selected next Friday and the giveaway item will be sent out, free of charge, shortly thereafter.

In the future I’ll be giving away more books and resources, sometimes multiple items per giveaway! So subscribe via feed reader or email to ensure you never miss your chance to win.

(Since I’m covering the shipping costs, only residents within the continental United States are eligible to win.)

The four items being given away are as follows:

“The Complete Thinker: The Marvelous Mind of G.K. Chesterton,” by Dale Ahlquist

“The Seven Big Myths About the Catholic Church: Distinguishing Fact from Fiction about Catholicism,” by Dr. Christopher Kaczor

Seven Big Myths

“Advent at Ephesus” (CD), by the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles

Advent at EphesusGoBible Traveler Catholic Edition
